COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The king of the abbey beers. It is amber-gold and pours with a deep head and original aroma, delivering a complex, full bodied flavour. Pure enjoyment! Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Temp: 8-10ºC)

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2006
330ml bottle - pours hazy gold with thinish white head - would have liked a bit more I guess. The colour under light is great. Aroma is bright and sweet, with citrus and yeast in evidence. The flavour is smooth and very flavourful, quite complex and fruity. There is a nice bitterness in the finish that lingers between each sip. Pretty traditional for the style, but very good.

sunevdj (3948) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2006
Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Smells of citrus, coriander and plastic. Very sweet with flovors of sugar and coriander. High carbonation. Hint of gunsmoke. Too sweet.

Good trappist, a bit fruity, could do with a bit more bitterness, but has nice esters in it.

mansquito (5340) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2006
I tried this beer in Barcelona of all places. Nice full flavour, typical sweet and complex palate taste of most strong Belgian beers. Nothing really too different from the other Belgian beers I’ve had(Duvel, Chimay, Rochefort, Bush), but Affligem pulls it off pretty well. No real complaints.

Bottle at home - bought at Fakta (12,- kr.) Clowdy yellow - white head. Yeast, hop, licorice, wheat, citrus, orange. A good typical Abbey Triple, but a wierd sharp pointy finish.

flemmingwillum (1184) - Nysted, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2010 Lovely yeasty and flowery aroma, with a careful alcoholic impression, too. The flavor is very malty, quite sweet, and includes a good amount of alcohol, though never too much. This beer is almost perfectly balanced. The finish is alike the flavor, flowery from the hops, and has an obvious bitter hopped finish. Affligem Tripel is probably not very unique, but it tastes good, smells good, feels good, looks fine and simply gives a good impression and drinking expierience.
